I have seen several posts on a Glock forum lately with people complaining about the finish flaking/scratching off of the rails on some newer models.

Most have been gen4 I believe. You might do a google search on it. You aren't the only one.

I just looked at two of mine and one of them (G27) has a similar mark on one side but not the other. The newer one (G22) has no visible marks. Note to self: Do not install the G22 slide on the G27 frame. They don't like to come apart.

Isn't it odd that after more than 30 years of production, 4 generations, it appears their quality control didn't catch the problem. Is this a single problem or is it a production run problem and there are more with the problem.

I would call Glock Ga.

The question is is it really a problem, or is it just a production mark that causes no problems? I mean gee whiz folks, Glocks are known for being ruggedly reliable. If you want a safe queen then get something else! I have not once seen anybody brag that they had an original unfired Glock. More the opposite in fact. More people brag about how many rounds they put through it without cleaning it, or how it was lost in the bilge of their boat for two seasons locked and loaded, but when they pulled it out it fired flawlessly for a hundred magazines non-stop.

That's why I stay a generation behind or at least a couple of years to let the bugs get worked out!! Not only with guns but cars, phones, ect. Anything newly mass produced, usually has hidden bugs that the manufacturer didn't catch. This practice has saved me a fair share of aggravation and headaches-
